(A) would like to check it out
but not a member.
(B) do not own a credit card
so no go.
(C) could not afford $4.95 per month
just to view neat trailers.
(D) In my short history of computers
I Have NEVER, EVER gotten
a Dream Catcher game to work.
my computer must have a thing
about them. (and I have had several)
first DreamCatcher game some puzzle
thing called secret caves gems whatever,
hit a room of Buhdda's and went
NOWHERE.
next game some Egyptian thing
transported back in time
walked like an Egyptian
and went NOWHERE.
*all very pretty mind you*
last game Dune, neat box,
loved the books.
again NADA after loading
or installing would not go past
splash screen.

I am sure it is a neat game
but I do not like or trust
Dream Catcher.
:(

It looks very interesting. Is it made by Ragnar Tournquist(known for The Longest Journey). Also, that reminds, Shenmue 2 is coming out late October. I'm so gonna get that.

thank you, I looked at this page,
it was when I went looking for
other stuff like trailers
and the likes,
that I got asked to join.
the review is free
the rest is not, I guess.

but hey why is the forum so Wonky?!

and it still frightens me
being a Dream Catcher game.

No. Syberia was written by Benoit Sokol.

I bought the game months ago. You will all follow suit or I shall fart in your general direction. :p

I think I'll try the demo first. Is there a demo, and how big is it?

looks cool. I'm also gonna get Shenmue 2 and Splinter Cell. Syberia kinda looks like this wierd game one of my friends had, D2

D2 is first-person shooter game based on the original, creepy, RPG game D. I was really pissed off when I found out it had a sequel that was a first-person shooter game.

Yeah, October 22 in US on xbox is Shenmue 2. It came out a super long time ago in the UK on dreamcast. Hopefully it will be as cool as the first. Only five more parts to make.

What else did Sokol do? and speaking of Tournquist, what other than The Longest Journy did he do or going to do?

Actually from what I saw D2 was still a third person rpg but the battles were in first person.

Shenmue 2 was excellent on the Dreamcast. Easily my favorite game ever. I can't wait to see how well they were able to do it on the Xbox.

D2.. just rent it. They took some tentacle scenes out of the American release, but you'll live.

I'll give D2 a chance. D was just one of those rpgs I grew up on. It's like if we find out they are making a GF2 yet it was first-person shooter (though I know some of you want that)

Yeah, D was one of those games that had very different endings depending on the choices of how you play it. Which ending does D2 build off of? Is Laura's dad still alive? In the game, Do you still get to have those awesome flashbacks?

speaking of games,
has anyone ever played
'Vampire
the masquerade Redemption?'
I have the OST for the game
and it is very cool,
but what about the game itself?
